What is FTTC? – Superfast Fibre Broadband

FTTC, also known as superfast fibre business broadband, is the next generation broadband connection. It is becoming more widely available in UK locations such as AberdeenGlasgow & Edinburgh in Scotland & further afield  in destinations such as London as part of the UK Government’s Superconnected Cities and the Connection Voucher Scheme.

Superfast Fibre Business Broadband

With an increasing reliance on the Internet for everyday business operations, FTTC offers a higher capacity for rich media, large complex files and online business processes, thanks to the increased bandwidth. It uses fibre optic cables to provide much higher speeds; both in upload (up to 20Mbps) and download (up to 80Mbps) speeds, even when several users are on the same connection.

If your business is investing in the benefits of cloud computing and cloud telephony, it can really benefit from the cost savings and flexibility of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) for communicating and sharing data.

Typically, the data rate of the connection is limited only by the terminal equipment and not the fibre itself, making this technology future proof. By upgrading your equipment, you’ll always be guaranteed the fastest business fibre broadband speeds available.

FTTC’s high performance and relatively low cost also make it an attractive proposition for businesses previously using Leased Lines or EFM circuits.

Other benefits of FTTC include:

  • In-house voice and data networks can be integrated, enabling improved information sharing and better customer service.
  • It costs less than a dedicated leased line.
  • Enjoy higher quality voice and video calls over the Internet with extremely fast business grade next generation connectivity.

Where available, we will give all our customers unlimited broadband usage on all ADSL and FTTC connections.
